Through a press release, Bob Cowsill explained the story of the album… which came about due to online interest in the new material, before that plan took an unexpected turn:

“When we decided to record an album, since we had written 11 songs, we launched a donation campaign with Pledge Music, set our goal and went down the funding route,” says Bob Cowsill about creating the album. ‘album.

“Pledge Music went bankrupt with everyone’s money and nobody got a dime. At the same time, Dr. Rock Positano, who has become our executive producer, stands on Gull Rock Island in Newport, Rhode Island staring at the white church steeple we all know so well there and says to his assistant: “I have to get my hands on the Cowsills. Rock came into our lives, and he supported us, our campaign, our music, our family band, and said, ‘I’m here to win.’ With that, we embarked on a great new relationship and haven’t looked back since.

More details, from Bob Cowsill: “With a few exceptions, we co-wrote all 11 Rhythm Of The World songs on our Happy Together summer tour. We wrote them in our hotel rooms on our tour bus and in our lodges. From Howard Kaylan’s (The Turtles) exuberant plea with the audience each night of the tour, inspiring us to “Ya Gotta Get Up!” to ‘Katrina’ (the first-person account of our brother Barry’s death during Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans) and all the songs in between, we use melody and harmony to bring some love and hope for peace in the world. Frank Filipetti was our mixing engineer and Greg Calbi mastered him (Rock does) so these songs have passed through the hands and ears of two of the best. Gail Marowitz and Danny Clinch have teamed up for a stunning cover and packaging and with Omnivore’s blessing Rhythm Of The World is now ready for prime time! We are thrilled to be here to claim our heritage and share our music!!!”

And a bit about the Cowsills’ career and legacy in music and entertainment:

Beginning in 1965 as a regional act from Newport, Rhode Island, The Cowsills, made up of six siblings, was “founded” by Joda Records owners Danny Sims and reggae/pop singer Johnny Nash (“I Can See Clearly Now”), with whom they recorded a handful of singles before signing to MGM Records in 1967. At this point, the band’s mother Barbara and younger sister Susan joined the act and they received a disc gold for over a million copies sold of their very first single for MGM. , the sublime, “The Rain, The Park & ​​Other Things”. This began a string of chart records that dominated the Top 40 for the next three years. Classic Cowsills recordings include “We Can Fly”, “Indian Lake”, “Hair” (from the rock musical Hair) and “Love American Style” (the theme song from the popular ABC-TV show of the same name) .

The group recorded and charted with five hit albums during this period. They published their own comic strip in 1968, and their story even inspired the popular 1970s sitcom The Partridge Family. They remained a thriving tourist attraction until 1972.
